A former pharmacy technician who sexually abused his 5-year-old niece and created a video montage of explicit images of the child will spend the next 35 years in prison, a San Diego judge ruled Friday.
Damian Clemente Mora, 31, of El Centro, Calif., pleaded guilty in March to two counts of sexual exploitation of a child.
According to sentencing documents, investigators discovered that Mora had photographed and videotaped his niece 512 times in sexually explicit positions and stored the images on his digital devices, including his computer, camera, table and a thumb drive.
The abuse happened over a two-year period.
Investigators said Mora compiled the hundreds of images into a disturbing eight-minute video montage that included upbeat music and an off-color subtitle that read, “Starring: A Loving Uncle.”
Prosecutors said Mora boasted about the photos “to other pedophiles and cavalierly wrote about finding additional victims.”
